Landscapes in the West of Salalah
Enjoy the scenic beauty in the West of Salalah:
You drive through the picturesque landscapes and Jabali villages, where herds of camels and cattle are a common sight and give an additional beauty to the charming view. Visit the old grave of the "prophet Job", located in the beautiful green mountains of the Salalah plain. Find out more about the legendary story of the Prophet and his piety.
Next you head west, to the only road that leads from Salalah to Yemen. Stop at the beach of Mughsail, where the white sand touches the deep blue of the Indian Ocean. Here you can marvel at the natural sea water fountains at high tide, which are also known as "blowholes". Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere overlooking the sea and the sound of the waves, which is amplified by the Marneef cave.
From here you continue driving along "serpentines", with breathtaking slopes on both sides, and reach one of the most attractive beaches in Dhofar, "Fazayah Beach". On the way you can see the historical frankincense trees in their natural habitat, the highlight in the valleys of the arid and rugged landscape.
Fazayah Beach will be an unforgettable memory of your stay in Oman. There is beautiful golden sand and an even better view of the beach with the pristine turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. The beach is framed by the stunning Dhofar Mountains with their charming cliffs in combination with the typical desert fauna. Here you have time to swim and relax. Beaches are the best places to get a clear head.
